The Bottom Line
The FreeMotion E7.7 is a top-grade elliptical machine that is often found in professional fitness gyms as well as in the comfort of many fitness families’ homes. With a music port, LCD touch screen and plenty of room to adjust your stride to what feels best, many agree that the E7.7 is the perfect combination of technology, safety and results. Multiple family members can use this machine thanks to its incredible durability and adjustable stride length. You will also certainly find a built-in program that works well for you out of the nine options that focus on various components of overall physical fitness.
Splurge on an iFit membership for the ideal combination of a sturdy machine and personal motivation found through Google Maps terrain and tough talks from Jillian Michaels. You’ll be hard pressed to find better accountability and more reasons to work out than you will with a celebrity coach pushing you further every step of the way.
While the heart rate sensors are located in the handlebars, you may want to monitor your heartrate independently as well, due to the reputation hand grips have for inaccurate readings. However, the hand grips are also attached to movable handlebars for a truly toned upper body and plenty of other physical challenges. A wireless chest strap is available for purchase if you are concerned about accurate heart rate readings but don’t know what to buy for the best report possible.
The FreeMotion E7.7 is truly a superior elliptical machine that will reap the results you want without so high a risk of injury or burn out.
